From the great state of Colorado…
I bought this wine intrigued by seeing a varietal I had not seen from any other Washington producer. Dolcetto is grown in the Piedmont area of Italy. These wines are typically meant to be consumed within a couple years of their release. Not knowing this and seeing it was a 2007, I decided to throw it in the decanter for a bit after first tasting it. Bad idea as the wine quickly fell to pieces. Before this the wine was quite enjoyable, although I have to confess I cannot say how true to the varietal it is or isn’t.
Dolcetto makes its way in to some of Woodward Canyon’s other wines, such as their Nelms Road Cabernet 2006.
